FreedomPop provides mobile phone services free of charge.
It then charges for extras to make a profit.
The company is already doing well in the United States and is now planning into expanding its international operations. It plans to launch its global operation into the UK, with a SIM-only service. The Mobile carrier will provide UK customers using the free plan with 200 minutes of free calls, plus 200 free texts and 200MB of free data. This puts it on par with other paid plans.
The Next Web reports:
Where that deal gets interesting is that FreedomPop adds in unlimited free calls and texts to other people on the network and free international calling to over 60 countries.
It’s also launching the Jetsetter – a free international roaming data SIM which will offer 100MB of free high-speed data per month. Initially you’ll only be able to use it in the UK, Spain and France, but coverage will eventually expand to over 20 countries.
FreedomPop users in the US can already take advantage of free International plans covering 50 countries. It’s attempted to upsell customers to unlimited voice, text and data plans, and other additions like a security service.
If you want early access to FreedomPop UK, the company is signing up beta users here. You can also sign up for a beta invite to grab a Jetsetter SIM.
